Like all the other large format art books put out by Dynamite Entertainment, this one if full of spectacular pieces from my favorite artistic medium: comic books.
Plus, it also features one of my favorite indie comics characters of all-time: Vampirella.
While the Warren Years Vampirella art book blew my f’n mind, this one doesn’t quite hit the mark for me in the same way.
Don’t get me wrong, this is still a great book to own for fans of the character and comic art. However, I’m a much bigger fan of the ’60s and ’70s classical art style of the other book. That era was full of work by great fantasy painters from Spain and Italy and it had a totally different vibe.
This collection features modern comic book art. I do like most of it but it doesn’t blow my socks off like the old school stuff.
If these are the sort of books you like to collect, this one shouldn’t disappoint. The art styles have changed over the decades since the original Vampirella stories but there are still great pieces to enjoy here.
Pairs well with: other art books put out by Dynamite Entertainment that features the history of the characters they publish.
